Candidates will undertake as individuals or as a member of a team a designated investigative project, or a professional work experience, with a suitable industry partner. This work could involve critical analysis of a topic, experimental research and/or development, theoretical modelling, process simulation and/or the solution of an industrial problem. Rigorous planning and scheduling of the project, time management, written and verbal technical communication, interpretation of results and team work will be required. Working off campus may be also be required, depending on the project.
The exact content covered in the subject will depend to some extent on the nature of the industry project. Topics covered will most probably include literature searches, site safety, risk assessment, engineering analysis, modelling and design and report writing.
Students will undertake seminars covering topics that will include professional standards of behaviour and ethical conduct, working in teams, time management and workplace networking.
This subject has been integrated with the Skills Towards Employment Program (STEP) and contains activities that can assist in the completion of the Engineering Practice Hurdle (EPH).
